Environmental pollution – from filthy air to contaminated water – is killing more people every year than all war and violence in the world. One out of every six premature deaths in the world in 2015 – about 9 million – could be attributed to disease from toxic exposure, according to a major study released Thursday, Oct. 19, 2017 in The Lancet medical journal.
